Investor, Amplify Partners

Lisha is a principal at Amplify Partners. She invests in technical founders solving ambitious problems. From compute substrate to the creative process, medicine to manufacturing, she is excited to be investing at a time when machine intelligence and data-driven methods have such incredible potential for impact. Investments she has been involved with include Embodied Intelligence and Primer. Lisha completed her PhD at UC Berkeley focusing on deep learning and probability. While at Berkeley she also did statistical consulting, advising on methods and analysis for experimentation and interpretation, and interned as a data scientist at Pinterest and Stitch Fix. She was the lecturer of discrete mathematics, as well as the graduate instructor for probability and computer science theory. Other things she has dabbled in include acting (unionized in Canada) and dance (was an artist with a modern dance company). A fun turn of events one summer visiting Paris as a research mathematician, Lisha found herself the subject of the short films “A Portrait of a Mathematician lady” and “Sizes of Infinity” by filmmaker Olivier Peyon that ties some of these eclectic interests.
